Ideally situated for people watching in downtownPort Vila. We sat there for ages on a coffee and enjoyed a pizza and the local beer.

After our initial disappointment that due to the weather, the lobster was unavailable. We each enjoyed a beautiful steak, cooked to perfection. Surroundings and entertainment great.

We had a lovely very long lunch here, it has an awesome view watching the boats and yachts cruising around the bay. Nice way to spend a lazy arvo in Vanu.

I have been several times here though boringly usually have the fish salad (marinated fish in coconut milk). It's nicely rustic beside the water and they have good music and singing at nights. All the meals look good and plentiful.

A nice setting, nice food, but a little on the expensive side. We also ended up with an extra bowl of chips we never ordered which was on the bill, along with a glass of red wine we never ordered or received. The wine was deducted from our bill upon asking though. Overall, a nice experience.

We had dinner here one night as it was just up the road from the Grand hotel where we were staying. It's an okay place to eat but we thought it was a bit overpriced compared to other places we ate.
